Fellow Tankers!

 

On Sunday August 28th the Canadian War Museum has a day called "Awesome Tanks".  This is an all day event similar to other military museums where they bring out the running tanks and do demonstrations for the public.  As I understand there is also another "club" in the Ottawa area that also brings vehicles for display and demonstration.  Visitors are also allowed into the back of the museum to see where the staff work on and maintain the many tanks and vehicles, and as I'm told even get onto or inside some vehicles!


 

I, and some of my fellow Triarii, are planning to get together for a day of fun and camaraderie and I'm putting the invite out to anyone who's interested and able to come!  Join us and you can meet Lephturn and Lokeen from the TankBOOM! podcast along with other tankers you may have platooned with in the past!  I'm also hoping to have some swag provided by War Gaming to distribute to attendees. :)


 

Date: Sunday August 28, 2016

Location: Ottawa, Ontario - The Canadian War Museum


 

Here is the link to the Canadian War Museum website for details and directions: http://www.warmuseum.ca/event/awesome-tanks-2/?date=8/28/2016


 

I can't wait.......I've been there already once and they have a fully running Leopard 2! :)  Hope to see that in action!


 

Stay Classy!

Lokeen

No way dude that's awesome!  You'll be surprised how many tankers are closer to you than you realize.  There's at least 4 Triarii that I know of in and around Ottawa.

Really, that's awesome. Can't wait to meet you guys.

 

Also can't wait to tell my son we're going to go see tanks drive around. He's tank crazy like his dad :)

Well I felt the same way so I looked around and decided to organize this!  Maybe there's something close to you that you don't even know about! :)

It's rumored <wink wink> your looking into a 'mobile' stream, right Lokeen? (;

 

 

( you have to admit, although unlikely, it would be epic )

All I can say at this point is that there is a VERY REAL reason I purchased a Mac Book Pro last month instead of a Mac Desktop....... :B
